FYI, for those who might have gotten their hopes up about xAuth...

Received this from Twitter tonight:

> Thank you for your interest in xAuth. Unfortunately, browser-based
> applications will not be given access to xAuth and must use the normal OAuth
> workflow instead. I apologize for the inconvenience.
> If your plugin has been using basic auth and needs to make a one-time
> conversion to OAuth for its existing user base, let me know and we can look
> into granting temporary xAuth access for this purpose.
